Why do you say pendrives have become obsolete?
Nah not at all
cloud stoage will elminate them coupled with cheap inet access.. atleast from my exp , couple of years ago few of the guys like me use to have pen drives of 2gb kind with us always , but there is no need for it now, cos either we can have all those put in our mobile phone itself , or keep it in dropbox kind of serivce

cloud storage is for backup and not for sharing the stuff with friends ( even thoough sharing them in cloud is quite possible ).. smarptphones repalced the need for pen drives when we needed to share small amount of data ( and ofcourse we dont share the smarptphones but just tranfer the contenst ) .. :winky: and who is using pen drive when we can get portable hard drives with capacity in TBs for throwaway price.. and if you are still looking for pen drives like Billa ajith , i cnat hep you :giggle:
